Pick the most overrated and underrated teams in the Dance.
Overrated = The first No. 1 seed to go home.
Underrated = The last team seeded No. 9 to No. 16 to still be playing.
Rules: Pick two teams, one that you think is the most overrated tournament team and one that you think is the most underrated. Maximum number of points is seven in the underrated category — one each for the possible number of wins for teams that play in the play-in games — and it's six for the overrated picks — a point for each empty step at which step the No. 1 seed falls (first-round would be six, second round is five, Sweet 16 is three, Elite Eight is two, Final Four is one). Perfect score is 13. Good luck.
Stakes: The cost to you is nothing; possible prizes could be announced later.
